Forest Green have extended the loan of Kettering midfielder Jake Thomson until the end of the season and are hoping to sign him permanently in January.
The Trinidad & Tobago international, 22, has been at the New Lawn since September and has made 11 appearances.
Rovers manager Dave Hockaday said: "Jake's agreed to sign until the end of this season and he is keen to commit himself beyond this."
Meanwhile midfielder Keiron Forbes has signed a one-year deal extension.
The 21-year-old has been a key figure in Hockaday's side this term, making 22 appearances, and will now stay with the Blue Square Bet Premier outfit until the end of the 2012-13 season.
The club have also signed up youngsters Adrian Harvey, 17, and Ashley Brown, 18, on non-contract terms.
Hockaday added: "This is massive news from the youth angle, as we want to be a club that will give our young players a chance of first team football.
"They are two of the best prospects at the club and with continued hard work I am sure there will be more that will come through."
